by refusing to raise the debt ceiling, something they agreed to rather effortlessly 25 times under george w. bush and ronald reagan. this would be the decision that would be only as disastrous as it is profoundly unnecessary. because the truth is, as president obama noted yesterday the u.s. economy's actually poised for a good year if only congress can get out of the way. i kind of paraphrased that last part. now that we know we're not going to be minting a trillion dollar coin, we need something different. a bill that would repeal the debt ceiling altogether. it is an idea supported publicly by alan greenspan and times man of the year last year, ben bernanke. it is an idea that could prevent lawmakers from lurching our country from one crisis to the next just to ring out some short-term gain until another republican sits in the oval office. that's why it's probably an idea that this congress has no chance of making law. but joining me now is one of the sponsors of the bill to repeal the debt ceiling altogether, democratic congressman from vermont and a member of the committee on house over
that george h.w. bush got in 1988. george h.w. bush won a landslide over michael dukakis. we know what happened to mitt romney. the same thing's happening now. the political ground is moving under their feet, and right now, sadly, neither they, nor the nra, is doing what it takes to make sure they adapt to changing times. and if they don't do it pretty y quickly, there's going to be changes for both organizations. >> more broadly among house republicans, you wrote in their response to colin powell, you in 1996 did not think he was the right choice to be the nominee, but you said the republican party of 2013 bears little resemblance to the party of ronald reagan that would have responded to powell's concerns with an all hands on deck effort to win the war back. it's big enough to win back the white house in 2016. and that's, to the point, we have a more and more bifurcated congress, not the congress you served in. there were 49 votes, only 49 votes for sandy relief last night. that says a lot. there were more than 49 votes for gulf damage and repair after katrina. >> colin powell is a m
reminiscent of what george h.w. bush did. health and mental records. these powers are within the presidency, also to put somebody standard head of the a.t.f., and a lot of funding for the a.t.f., which is a lagging agency. they'll be charged with enforcing these gun laws. by strengthening the a.t.f., he is going to be doing some strengthening. >> cenk: when you block over countries from importing more guns here, it helps the n.r.a., because they represent american gun manufacturers, gives them a bigger monopoly. the check on mental health, if that's the only thing they do, that was an n.r.a. proposal, too. it's not nearly good enough. that's not the only thing they are proposing, and i want to be clear on that. if they settle, it sucks. >> that's the important thing to extinguish. it's not the only thing they are proposing, but the only thing george h.w. bush did on guns a transparent way of saying we are helping american gun manufacturers. this is the sail time as you're trying to fight guns here, fighting guns coming from overseas. rand paul in the is that the the senate is against this,
w. bush reelected for two terms. now, completely opposite. >> there is a lot to what you are saying. a lot of it is also generational. as people are aging out of what you would call traditional. >> bill: five years. >> happens gradually. one day you wake up and say. >> bill: i'm old. >> younger generation doesn't particularly dislike the idea that gays can get married. it's in the libertine. it promotes traditional monday hun nothing -- >> if this were a football the left has all the momentum. >> another thing you said which rings through there is no central figure on the right. >> bill: none. >> mitt romney you said he wasn't conservative enough. i don't think he was anything. he tried to be all things to all people and didn't resonate with anybody on the spectrum. that was the problem. >> bigger picture which you are trying to talk about here couple of things going on this. has been going on for decades where the left has been much more well organized, much more well financed and much more focused on their goals. decades they have been chipping away at traditional america. secondl
to war in iraq, that is the original sin of the george w. bush era in america. but it does not mean that they cooked up all that fake and misleading intelligence all by themselves. some of it came from enemies of saddam and iraqi exiles and expats who shoved it to the u.s., knowing it was false, but hoping we would nevertheless fall for it because they wanted us to invade. that recent history of the u.s. and how we get into wars these days looms large. it looks large particularly on days like this when we see bombshell headlines like this one. our friend josh rogin at foreign policy tonight reporting that someone inside the obama administration says that he or she has seen a cable that if the information in that cable is true would be a very scary thing. the headline, as you can see there, "chemical weapons used in syria." chemical weapons used. nobody is known to have used chemical weapons in 25 years. we know syria has them. but have they used them in their civil war? because that really would change everything. but look back at that headline again. the part before the part that w

and said that our elected officials. joining me now, former adviser to president george w. bush. senior fellow at the cato institute. i will start with you. here is the president back in 2006 on the idea of raising the debt limit. he said, the fact that we are here today to debate raising america's debt limit is a sign of our leaders failing in the u.s.overnment cannot pay its own bills and i intend to oppose the effort to increase the debt limit to and here he is begging for the debt limit to be raised now hat he is president. >> i think that he was right several years ago when he talked about the size of fiscal irresponsibility, but all of a sudden he seems to think it is just a wonderful, peachy keen idea. gerri: irresponsible thing to do . brad, to you. i am -- i went back and looked at the last time the government was not paying its bills. twenty-six days back in fiscal year 1996. clinton was president, and the only really bad thing that happened is that we furloughed a lot of what is called nonessential workers from washington. what is the ultimate impact if republicans don't agre
should not read their own press. there are always going be to be critics and i remember george w. bush did not spend a lot of times reading the nasty things that people said about him. he would say, look, this is where i think we need to go, this is a policy and help me get there. and he would try to bring in people from the other side to get that done. that wasn't always possible and people didn't always agree with him, but that was a bert approach and got more done because of it. >> that kind of pushing away, that kind of aggressive approach to the republicans, it's having an impact. there are consequences to this. fitch, the rating agency, is now warning about a downgrade. when the president says i'm not going to negotiate, that implies, well, we may not get a deal of any kind on the debt ceiling. it's pushing them away and fitch says, watch out, here comes a downgrade. this is entirely possible with very serious consequences. >> sean: he could use the kids tomorrow as he announces executive orders as props. >> exploit them. >> sean: exploit them, i agree, that's the right term. int
the construction had largely been put on hold following u.s. objections dating back to president george w. bush. but israel resumed work there last month in response to the u.n. vote recognizing palestine as a nonmember observer state. the obama administration has refused to pressure israel for building -- for a building halt, limiting its reaction to calling the e1 expansion "counterproductive." clashes also erupted in the occupied west bank tuesday at the funeral of an unarmed palestinian teen killed by israeli troops. 17-year-old samir awad was shot multiple times as he tried to walk away from israeli soldiers to the israeli separation wall that carves up the west bank. samir's brother said he was killed on his way to write a final exam at school. >> he was on his way to school because he had an exam, his last school exam. after half an hour they called and told as my brother was wounded. >> samir awad was reportedly the fourth unarmed palestinian killed by israeli forces in the occupied territories in the last four days, including a farmer shot in the hd in the gaza strip. israeli forces fi

seniors, when george w. bush signed no child left behind there were children there. how is this any different than any other piece of legislation that affects a group that has particular interest and the group is present when the signing takes place? martha: yeah. >> or when the announcement takes place. martha: the children wrote letters to the president, tucker. and they have been asked to stand by him. they're having their voices heard in america. what is wrong with that? >> well, this is not, this is very serious, very adult and incredibly complicated issue and to bring children on stage is to engage in a kind of moral blackmail. if you're against this legislation you're against the kids. the truth is, no serious person who knows anything about crime noll dpi or violence in our violence in the society believes banning weapons based on their cosmetic qualities is going to save a single life. it is ludicrous. even the white house is not claiming that the so-called assault weapons boon would have prevented the newtown tragedy or any other shooting or any other 300 deaths attributed

four years ago as far as more transparency on the reversal fund in terms of george w. bush -- what physically decision was made to change that? was there a request, could you raise by to become more money? >> to be honest none of those were the considerations. my understanding is that we just kind of, you know, each one of these is created every four years. they are not continuations of the same committee from four years ago. like i said we are lucky enough to have us asked from last time and this is a decision made in this instance in terms of disclosure, and again the given the fact that there is the requirement as will all be public. this was a rare attempt to go above and beyond that to have a level of transparency. >> over the weekend and on monday are their telephone numbers we can call if we need to check up on something that may be an arrest or something on the floor, who is going to be available to answer phone calls? >> one more time from your question? >> on monday if we need to check on anything that happens out of the ordinary may be an iraq or demonstrations comes som

they have to say. i actually joined with president george w. bush, he wanted a comprehensive immigration reform, i told him i strongly support him on that. we don't face this issue in vermont. we don't have canadians wanting to come across the border for a better life or better health care system or whatever in the united states. they are pretty comfortable where they are. but that's not the case everywhere. i'm also very worried -- some of the things i hear and some of the blogs xenophobic attitude, kick those foreigners out, probably by somebody who is one or two generations away from being immigrants themselves. that's not what america is about. that's not what attracted my grandparents and great grandparents to this country. so i am perfectly willing whether it's the gang of six, 12, or something, but in the united states senate we need a gang of 51 to get it through and you need majority in the house. i have talked with president obama about this. i know he's strongly committed to real immigration reform. would like to see the dream act passed. i'd like to see a number of other thin
